Yoshizato is a high-class prostitute, who lives in a Yoshiwara, where prostitution is legal. Hirata, one of her customers, leaves her and returns to his home town Okayama. She becomes very sad about this and thus treats another customer, Zenkichi, very coldly. But when she learns that Zenkichi lost his fotune because of her., she starts to treat him more warmly. But together, they don't have money and at last they commit suicide together. (Summary by ekzemplaro)
